    I had a wretched experience while in my first semester clinicals in nursing school. I was also a few months pregnant, so the nausea was rather overwhelming...

    I had an elderly patient who needed to be changed after defecating. She was at least 90. After securing her privacy, I buckled down to the task. The poor woman kept apologizing to me which tugged on my heart strings, so I started making conversation with her whilst down there to alleviate her embarrassment....

    No joke, mid-sentence, entrenched in cleaning all that there is to geriatric southern scene, she passed flatus....in my mouth.

    I quickly turned away, certain I would gag and throw up. I didn't even know it was POSSIBLE for that to occur..but, oh, it can. I somehow managed to collect myself quickly, return to the task, and acted like nothing had happened.

    I still laugh about it with friends today. Now, I make sure to stay up wind, lol.

    Dynamic, dynamic, dynamic...dream big, achieve all things!

    Shortly after graduating nursing school I was thrilled to be working as a nurse. I wore my white uniform dress, white stockings and new white shoes with the pride that "I'm a nurse!" I entered a patients room to do a treatment to her backside. The patient had been in a vegetative state and non-verbal for quite some time. As the CNA rolled the patient over so I could do the treatment...the patient had a MASSIVE, explosive, liquid BM. My entire white attire was now dripping with runny poop from my neck to my toes! The non-verbal patient who was in a vegatetive state doubled over and burst into a gut busting laugh as she looked at me! The three of us stood there as poop dripped off of me laughing hysterically! Yes...now I was a nurse!

    My first gastric lavage, the pt projectile vomited charcoal on the side of my face, neck, hair, scrubs. Oh and yes I WAS wearing a mask and gown... Unfortunately I had forgotten to bring my hazmat suit with me that day! After getting a face/hair full of black vomit, I contemplated bathing in acid...
